, many of us have been saying for years, when do we get action? if it happens in december, that is better. if it happens in january, that is significant progress. i think they said it very succinctly. carlisle and azande wrote, ideally, policy makers that they would work around the economy while making changes to fiscal stability. such nirvana may not be achievable in the lane duck, but it will be early next year. the current tax increases and government spending cuts probably have to lighten up a bit to generate consensus between the two political parties. i hope that is not right, but if it is, that is what we need to do. i assume you a -- >> i assume you agree with everything bob just said? [laughter] >> and bob is right that you have to sort through these issues, and i think he has come to exactly the wrong bottom line. on the cliff itself, this is an extreme danger to the economy. everybody has their own numbers. you put together the tax increases and spending cuts, and it is something like $640 billion in our calculation. it is something like 4% of gdp. we are looking at 1.5% at bes
